I Don't Even Know What to Say About This...


I am beyond appalled. I am sickened, sad, horrified and any other adjective you can think of that describes the feeling you get when your heart falls into your shoes.

People picked a random day and called it "Kick a ginger day," and beat the crap out of all the red-headed kids. I saw it on the news, but there are articles about it all over the place. It was even spoofed on Sou.th Par.k, which just "helped" the issue, I'm sure. I honestly cried while watching this on the news. Obviously this is going to hit close to home with me, but seriously? Are kids really this cruel?

I really don't even know what to say. If I could put my son in a bubble and protect him from people like this, I would. I guess all I can say is that if anyone out there comes anywhere near my precious little "ginger" they are going to have one pissed off Mother to deal with. And to my fellow mothers? Let's try and teach our kids about loving other people and not bashing them simply for the color of their hair. Or for any other reason! Can we at least agree on that?

**This isn't my most well-written post ever, but I am honestly so upset by this that I can't even seem to get my thoughts together enough to form a proper blog post. You get the gist...

This "ginger" knows karate. Not a bad way to introduce your baby to sports.

Perhaps I'll make a t-shirt that says "This ginger kicks back."

That is one of the most horrifying things I have ever heard! Mostly, because as one of your boy's biggest fans, it hits too close to home for me too.

One of my "ginger" friends did tell me that now Nov. 24 is to be known as "Hug A Ginger Day." SO much better. Teach kids love, not hate.
